Detailed Feature Breakdown
Baseline Features of nKind That Set Us Apart
What others don't want you to know
As you may have learned about us and our development philosophy, we do not like to reinvent the wheel. We like to use the wheel as a component to build bigger and better things. Trying to reinvent a system or part of a system because you need a baseline from which to build better tools often falls short. This is why we started with one of the most powerful, flexible, secure, and open CMS platforms in the world today, Umbraco. Several aspects about Umbraco make it great. First, it is built on a stable, popular, and secure technology stack from Microsoft. Most website providers will guide you into much less secure platforms like WordPress. Second, it is built as a highly extensible toolkit with the desire to have people build amazing things with it. And finally, it is always evolving to meet the needs of its enormous user community.
Another important distinction about the nKind product is that we isolate your site infrastructure and your data from other customers. Every customer is provided security and privacy for themselves and their donors by having their own database and their own site infrastructure. Most website providers use shared infrastructure wherein your site and even your data is hosted with dozens or hundreds of other customers. Hackers love this because you can hack one and get access to a lot of data or embed malware or ransomware across multiple sites. With other providers, you may not even be a target and still lose your data and the trust of your donors.
nKind does not have access to your donor data. We help you set up your own transaction processor accounts with whomever you can get the best terms with. We do not take any percentage of your donations. nKind therefore does not have access to your bank or your transaction data. We simply provide a secure process that is 100% PCI compliant and your company data is yours. You are typically left on your own to figure out compliance measures with regards to your website transactions. These other providers can lead to site shutdowns and even freezing of bank assets. nKind completely isolates your data to protect you and your donors. Many other services run cheap sites so that you will fill it with donor and transaction lists and then those other providers often sell your data to marketing companies.
nKind uses only high availability and high performance cloud infrastructure to ensure that you get the ability to serve all of your donor needs. As your donor base grows, we can gradually scale up your servers to meet your needs. Changes are instant and require no downtime. If you have a large web event planned, we can even scale up to meet the need and back down after the event is over to save you money. Often providers leave it to you to figure out and make changes to your services which can lead to very disruptive outages. Everyone has heard horror stories of other providers where people made big plans, worked on materials, blasted out invites in emails and social media just to have their site crash during the big event.
